May it be a day of fun and happiness.

I like to think my opinion column in Atomic is pretty snappy. They’re all retrospective pieces, so it’s rather nice to meditate on everything I’ve ever experienced and throw a bit of seasoned pro-isms around, using 20-odd years of distilled tech love to give the youngins some perspective and the oldies some nice flashback nostalgia.

Yes you do sir....yes you do....

I did a cool writeup for the old Atomic MPC site ages ago but looks like that's gone now (lost all the old posts there when it switched to a new owner, but forum is still alive).

Basically I was invited to the Supercars 2 game launch at Eastern Creek, Skaify and Ambrose and some others were there, it was cool.

They had a comp playing the game on xboxes for the guests, which I won. Just after that photo trophy moment, which was pretty cool, they announced there was a surprise prize - and that was hotlaps around the track with Skaify in a V8 Supercar. So like, wow.

And it was mindbending. Pretty sure Skaify gave it a high level of beans. Really violent and loud. Amazing experience and I vividly remember every moment. Got four laps and was laughing like a crazy man every second, I like to think Skaify knew I was into it and put on a good performance.

Was a most excellent day.
